While I was at work last week, my coworker went up to me and said, “Colourpop is having a flash sale RIGHT NOW!” Then, we literally both went on our phones straight to the website, sorry manager.
If you haven’t heard of Colourpop, it’s a makeup brand well known for its lipsticks. It’s seriously all over Instagram, and for good reason. Not only do they have such a variety of good quality products and colors, but they’re also super affordable! I’m basically obsessed.
I have a few of their lip products, but today I’m going to be reviewing their eyeshadows. The sale last week went from 4-8pm PST with 20% off all of their eyeshadows, so it was basically $4 per color! How could I resist???
I received my package yesterday, here we go:
OKAY, FIRST, CAN WE TALK ABOUT HOW ADORABLE THIS BOX IS? It’s wrapped with foam and comes with a cute note! The note is mass produced, but that’s okay. I still feel loved. In my experience from previous purchases, they usually write your name on the note, but I think because there were a lot of orders from the sale, they didn’t have time for that lol.
These are the colors I chose. I chose the green ones because I don’t really have nice green eyeshadow colors, so I wanted to give it a try.
WOW, first off, these are pigmented as heck. Tassel is giving me unicorn realness. Eye candy is just so cute! It reminds me of lip gloss, but for your eyes? Belladonna lily, lets be honest, I got it cause it has my name on it. It looks matte compared to others, but it still has some shimmer in there. I love the cute pastel vibes these three give me.
Flower shop is metallic green; it’s like badass forest fairy queen. Rex is amazing. I feel like I’m staring into the galaxy with this color! I love it. Bae is seriously bae. I think I can see myself using this color a lot in the future because it’s somewhat neutral. Envy is lovely, I’m sure I’ll use it on my edgy days for a smokey eye.
When I swatched these eyeshadows, I was actually surprised that it was a creamy texture. I imagined it being powdery/chalky like most eyeshadow palettes I own, but this was soft and super easy to apply, even without primer. Plus, it blends so well, I don’t have to put so much effort. I guess the only downside though is that I can’t really use an eyeshadow brush with it. My brush didn’t seem to pick up much product, probably because of the creamy consistency. It picked up a little bit and I was able to use the brush to blend, but overall, using my fingers seemed to work the best.
FINAL VERDICT: I must say I really love this. I can’t wait to test out more looks with it! I definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to expand their eyeshadow collection.
Sooooooooooooooooooo…..In the hype of the flash sale, I accidentally bought two of Rex, and I didn’t realize till yesterday OOPS. Anyway, I was going to keep it because I like the color so much, but I also found this as an opportunity to share, yay!
